The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Archenemies (Renegades #2) by Marissa Meyer + 50/50 Friday




On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and 50/50 Friday is a new weekly link up and it is hosted by Carrie @ The Butterfly Reader and Laura @ Blue Eye Books. For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. Then, for 50/50 Friday, every week there's a new topic featuring two sides of the same coin - you share a book that suits each category and link up on the hosts blogs.



This week I'm spotlighting one of my Sci-fi July reads for Devour Your TBR, Archenemies (Renegades #2) by Marissa Meyer.  Marissa Meyer is one of my favorite YA authors and I like her take on the superhero genre.  I'm glad to finally be back in this world!



Beginning:

Adriana crouched on the rooftop, peering at the delivery entrance behind the Gatlon City Hospital.  It was early morning - the sun hadn't risen yet, though hints of light were turning the sky from charcoal gray to pale violet.  The dimness made it difficult to see anything ten stories below, beyond a couple of vans and a supply truck.

56:

"Now, that does leave one conundrum," said Evander.

50/50 Friday: Favorite/ Least Favorite Character Arc - This week I'm featuring Stranger Things characters in honor of the newest season (only covering the first two seasons here).



Favorite - Steve Harrington - Easily has the best arc in the series - it's something when a character organically pulls a 180 and goes from my least favorite character to my favorite.



Least favorite - Jonathan Byers - Jonathan's still one of my favorite big hearted characters in the show, but he just didn't  have quite as interesting of a storyline in season two for me.


What are you reading this week?  Have you read any of these books?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  8. I still need to start this series. I love this author and can't believe I still haven't fit it into my busy reading schedule. Maybe soon, though.
